A Day With My Flynn And Happy Easter

A Thursday post?
I thought I would post tonight instead of tomorrow, which is of course Good Friday.

Yesterday, Steve took the older two on a day trip to the movies and the mall.
Around here, it does take a day to get to a big mall.  : )
The watched a movie, did some shopping, and ate at Outback Steakhouse...

As seen in this photo Steve sent me. : )

( And did I ever tell that when my dear Peyton was born and the nurses wrapped her up and handed her to me, I immediately saw a tiny Steve?!? )

I was entrusted with the care of Peyton's pup Kirby...
And this pretty much sums up how he felt about that.

Meanwhile, my little Mocha found the few rays of sunlight peeking through, and made herself at home.

And so as my little Flynn said it was, "Just you and me, Mom!"
We had a special Mommy and Me Day.
And we both loved it.
First off we decided to bake a treat to surprise the big kids and Daddy.
We put on our aprons and got to work.

And although I rarely bake anymore...Peyton takes care of that...I think we did a good job.
We decided on chocolate chip cookies...with a few m&m's thrown in for fun.

After that we snuggled on the sofa and watched this movie.
It is actually one of my favorites!
Any guesses?
I'll let you know down below. : )

We also took the puppies on a walk down our road, and were thrilled to find these!
I am so happy because soon I have a science unit prepared all about the life cycle of frogs.

After a dinner of...what else?...Kraft macaroni and cheese...my youngest proceed to beat me in a serious game of good old fashioned checkers.

It was a wonderful day.
I tucked my girl in and she told me she had one of the best days of her life.
And then we both fell asleep. : )

Have a blessed and Happy Easter, my friends.
Enjoy your time with your people.
I'll be back to posting on Monday.
Thanks for visiting!

(Oh. Did you guess the movie? It is The Emperor's New Groove.)
And it is super funny!
